Our cellular anticancer system evolved in the expectation that certain plant molecules would always be present in our diet. A lot of these we can grow in our gardens.
From the Foreword by Richard Fernandez
David Archibald’s book is an invaluable resource for all those interested in reducing their risk to cancer through diet. It lists the plants that have been investigated for their anticancer properties and why. It contains an extensive bibliography that readers can use to learn more. It doesn’t try to be a guidebook to alternative medicine or a recipe book to cure specific ailments. Perhaps the most fascinating chapter is Archibald’s short history of chemotherapy and how it attempts to work. By focusing on the wherefores it is the opposite of those books which with scant preliminaries attempt to offer remedies without offering understanding.
